Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Drizzle a sided baking sheet with 1 Tbsp olive oil and place in the oven for 5 min. Remove from the oven.

Place potatoes on the sheet and sprinkle with 1 tsp thyme leaves, about 1/4 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper. Roast potatoes about 15 to 20 min or until browned and crisp, tossing halfway through. Remove from oven; wrap potatoes in foil to keep warm.

Place the tomatoes, olives, capers and garlic on the same baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil, 2 Tbsp vinegar and 1 tsp thyme. Place in oven and roast until just beginning to soften, 15 min.

In a small bowl, mix the remaining 2 tsp olive oil and 1 tsp thyme, 2 Tbsp vinegar, 1/4 tsp salt, and pepper to taste; brush on the fish. Place the fish on top of the roasted tomato mixture and return to the oven until fish is just cooked through, about 10 min.

Divide among plates and serve with the potatoes. Garnish with sprigs of thyme.
